"close to airport"
I was not impressedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
nice place, would have liked to have spent more time there - would make a great getaway location - only thing that would make the room better would be a fireplace.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"wonderful food and service and view!!"
Loved it! Room service food was superb. The room was spotless. The people friendly. And Tim Hortons right next door. 6 minutes to the airport even in traffic. Highly recommended!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was very good enjoyed stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Filthy, dirty, holes in walls. Felt like the hotel was rented by the hour.Genuine Expedia guest review
"$20 taxi from the airport"
Hotel staff was excellent, service excellent. Hotel is in need of an update/reno, but otherwise fine and clean for a one night layover.Genuine Expedia guest review
This place is out of date. There were cigaret burn in the sheet covers. There was a old rotting smell from the room. The bed was worse then just sleeping on the floor. Do not book here. It seems like its more of a pay by the hour hotel then $120 a night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"easy to find"
Just stayed one night. Room was clean and bed was comfy. Staff was pleasant. We enjoyed our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth it at all"
Our room looked nothing like it did in the pictures. I guess our room wasn't one of the advertised "newly renovated" ones because it was very old. The beds has impressions from bodies in them. We could hear our neighbors all night and it was freezing!!!! Extremely disappointed!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"good for sleeping"
I attended a conference in Ottawa and only had to sleep at hotel. The climb up metal stairs outside the building was different, one hotel I stayed in previously had access to walkway was accessible between two building and was dry. It was a wet weekend. The view of the river was calming. Next choice of hotel will be for me to ask for a room view of […] the river. The hotel is located within a residential area, good choice. It surprised me, I expected businesses. The continental breakfast was nicely laid out. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close to airport, trian station"
definiately dated (1970). Old mattresses, small rooms, no view. See through cutains in room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Fall day"
At first I was abit taken aback. I had booked 3 rooms with 2 beds each and ended up with 1 room with a bed and pull out couch, not ideal. One room did not have a bath but just a shower. As it turned out it all worked out. The view is beautiful of the river. The complimentary breakfast was very basic but the Tim Horton's steps away was a good suplementary […] choice. We were on the bottom floor of the building with the "new" renovations. A toddler on the floor above us ran back and forth for pretty much all of our time in the room. There are no carpets are the floor, which does not help with the noise but makes the room nice. There was a wedding on the property while we were there, it did not take away from our stay.

"Nice motel with good location"
My wife and I came to Ottawa to support our son. Due to a traffic problem, we arrived about 1:30 Saturday morning. It was good to see someone on duty at the front desk. The staff that I encountered seemed very good.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great place on the river!"
We really enjoyed the refurbished room looking onto the Rideau River! We loved the sliding door and balcony. Breakfast was adequate. Rooms were clean. Very good value!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great country setting right in town"
I was quite satisfied with the room but can't comment on much else since we never tried the food. The only annoyance was having maid service knock on the door at 9am.... guess i should have had the do not disturb sign out. lol The grounds are very nice and the beds were very comfortable. I would stay there again without hesitation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute, clean, newly renovated hotel"
I recently had to stay in Ottawa for a job interview and was looking for the most affordable hotel in the area. I wasn't expecting much from the hotel, but was very pleasantly surprised. My room was newly renovated, stylish, and clean. I felt very safe staying there by myself. Would definitely recommend this hotel to other travelers and would stay there […] again myself.

"Highly OVER_RATED. The rating should be 2 Star."
Dirty carpets, looks like the hotel is coming apart, very close to the main road and quite noisy, rusted pillars and posts, very out-dated bath sink and old bed spreads. The only thing new was the tub. Overall terrible experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent value, service and location"
We stayed at the Monterey Hotel for 3 nights attending a family funeral. One of our family is very elderly and requires significant support and accommodation. The staff, including front office housekeeping and restaurant staff, were incredibly supportive of our needs. We were all in renovated rooms which looked out over the river. They were well appointed […] and very quiet. The hotel is close to a major road, but we could hear no street noise. There have been some complaints about the breakfast--but it is free! Adding scrambled eggs and sausages for those requiring protein, yoghurt, and cream cheese and bagels would be welcome, but there was excellent fruit salad, better than average muffins and scones, a variety of cereals, toast, coffee, milk and juice. I expect most people would eat less breakfast at home than they expected to receive complimentary at this hotel. The restaurant food was excellent, but do not expect fast food. It is fine dining at reasonable prices, and the restaurant was most obliging in preparing menu items for us to take to the room for our less mobile family member. If you want fast food, Tim Horton's is virtually on the same site. On our next trip to Ottawa, we will stay at the Monterey. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We up graded your room to a deluxed room for a good rate. The room was model and like new. Breakfast was continental and a good standard. It hotel is in a quite location and the hotel was very quite for us, however it did take 20 mins to drive into the city centre but that didn't bother us as it was worth it to stay in a quality hotel at a good rate. […] We would love to stop here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy to get downtown"
The hotel was old. The room had a musty smell. The televison was old, not a flat screen. The beds were not comfortable. We both had sore bones the next day. The continental breakfast was horrible and only on from 7:00 AM until 9:00 am. Good thing we were up early we got there at 8:50 , they were about to close. Don't know if we would go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rather more like a motel than a hotel. Location was good and grounds were interesting, but bed was very well used and room not very clean smelling. Service people were eager to please.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A Girl's Weekend in Manotick (near Ottawa)"
We arrived in the afternoon and were welcomed by a smiling front desk person We had been put into a room with a queen bed and a pull out couch, but unfortunately we had booked a room with 2 double beds. A problem it was not and with a little rerouting of guests we were in a newly renovated room with a view of the river and the surrounding grounds. The […] hotel itself was fully booked (a lot of weddings are held there), there was no loud sounds or noises during the night of people coming and going; the room itself (along with the bed) was very comfortable. The hotel is very accessible to downtown Ottawa and the surrounding towns, such as Merrickville where we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of shopping (and the weather was good too).

Rooms good enough for the price. Terrible breakfast! No food, no service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice quiet place"
It was a nice place to relax and sleep after a long drive. Breakfast was good but they ran out of stuff too early. Definitely will stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"For the price its a nice hotel. The room was clean"
The staffs are very accommodating. We came a bit early and they let us checked in. The room was very clean and lots of towels for us.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Remodelled clean rooms"
You can hear everything above you, if your on the bottom floor. Rooms were clean. Staff was friendly. Pool was dirty. Breakfast was good. Don't think it should be considered a Hotel, but more of a upscale Motel. Parking in Front of room was great. Unable to get into hot tub.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Monterey Hotel, Ottawa, ON, Canada"
We had a newly renovated room. The room was quite small but OK for one night. The bathroom was very small. There was no telephone book in the room or even at the front desk, but the desk clerk was able to get us the phone number we wanted through the internet on her computer. Because we were attending a funeral of a family member, we requested a late […] checkout and they were nice enough to extend our checkout until one o'clock which we really appreciated as we had to travel for about six hours and we wanted to get into more comfortable clothing for the trip. We had dinner at the restaurant and had a very enjoyable meal and the server, a young man, was very professional. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"room is good, but the breakfast is not"
the motel is in good condition, with swimming pool outside, however, the breakfast is not goodGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely location; breakfast can improve"
The staff at reception were pleasant and the service was quick and efficient. We got a nice room - it looked just like in the photographs online. They have a swimming pool outdoor and indoor: a fitness room, a sauna and a whirlpool. I felt good after using the whirlpool. Breakfast was included in our booking. This was the only disappointment. There […] was only a small selection/variety of food available: bread, croissants, muffins/pastries, cereal, milk, mixed canned fruit, tea, coffee. The muffins while edible felt old. A selection of fresh fruit, an option for eggs and perhaps yogurt will be helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"THIS IS NOT A HOTEL...IT'S A MOTEL...."
We arrived to find this was a Motel not a Hotel...all rooms have outside access. Old property that has been refurbished...not very well at that. Room was extremely small. It was reasonably clean however the bathroom was extremely small....toilet handle was broken so the toilet ran all the time...door handle to bathroom was broken....just dull and dingy...I […] do not recommend this MOTEL to anyone. Was definitely not worth the money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close to golf course"
A lovely hotel with a superb view of the Rideau River. The room was modern, clean, and comfortable. It was small, but the balcony overlooking the river made up for it. Many pleasing accents, such as a vessel sink and bedside lights with reading lights - nice touch!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"will stay again"
Hotel is well looked after, staff were very friendly, nice to be on the river and close to hiking/cycling trails. Will be staying here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ideal location, felt semi rural yet still so accessible to the city. Deluxe rooms are wonderful, pool was great especially after a hot day site seeing....... Breakfast could be better! We will stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very nice place"
Pleasantly surprised. Rooms were big and clean. We had the renovated room and it was really modern and cozy. Great being so close to the river. Rented canoes and went fishing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great view of the river. Very quiet and comfortable. Room was very clean. Breakfast standard fare - nothing exciting but could order from menu if wanted.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel, beautiful location, very nice staff. I will definitly stay here again. Thank You,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not at all what I expected. Had a new completely renovated room overlooking the Rideau river. Canoe rentals, cute swimming pool and nice restaurant. Work out facilities could be upgraded.Genuine Expedia guest review
The beads were way past worn out. The air conditioner was old and smelled musty or moldy. The staff was pretty nice though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, would stay again."
The hotel was quite nice. The dining lounge, pub-style restaurant and outdoor patio were nice with a varied menu. My only concern was the people in the room next to me were very loud at 3:30 a.m. They were not considerate of other guests.... and they kept trying to forceably open the adjoining door to our room. Luckily they were unsuccessful as there […] was a chair in front of the door with our suitcases placed on the chair on our side of the door. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pay the extra for the renovated rooms"
We ended up staying two nights but switched the second night to the renovated rooms for a $20 difference. The second night was wonderful, loved the room, the first night we didn't like the room. Ate at the restaurant in the evening which had good food and friendly service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Average stay for price"
I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel near my meetings. The Monterey. The room requires and update to decor, but was otherwise clean. No wireless.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had to switch room because room was dirty, stain on carpet, food on the floor, hole in closet door, next room was better, beds were uncomfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not at all satisfied"
very poor service being ignored....will never go backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a newly renovated room overlooking the river complete with a balcony. A great place to relax and watch canoes and kayaks paddling by. The hotel was full the night we were there but the room was quiet all night. Overall, a great hotel for the price even though it has the 'motel' look from the road.Genuine Expedia guest review
"okay for one night while travelling"
it's okay for one night while travelling. I was there for 4 nights. Room not great. Old, didn't feel clean. The location was good - close to airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
